The atheist and humanist roots and orientation of psychiatry are wide and deep. . . no wonder they wouldn't see a possession.

It is hard to see a possession past the physical and chemical differences in a brain which are
clearly causing all the problems
and which leave us no need to postulate anything further.

Because they don't exist.

Yeah. When people get possessed by foxes the Japanese still
it kitsunetsuki, but they treat it like the poor girl's just gone crazy! How will they ever get free of the nogitsune that makes them bark and have strange moving lumps and eat lots of fried tofu, if psychiatric wards don't keep priests on the premises to do exorcism ceremonies?
The creeping atheism is robbing the country not just of its religion, but of its superstition, too!
...but that's not what you meant. You don't believe in fox possession either, do you?
(P.S. @Amos--sometimes we can't see the problem in the brain, either because there's no physical component or because we haven't worked that one out yet. But still.)

No, wait, that's on the Theology degree. It comes after Acts of the Apostles, surprisingly enough.

Psychiatry? Really, psychiatry? You're referring to psychology. Why doesn't anyone call us psychologists witchdoctors? I feel left out :(
